In the 1960s, the school had about 1,200 students. The U.S. Department of Education recognized Weber as a "National Exemplary School" in 1990. In the 1990s, the tuition fees increased and the student population declined by 100 on an annual basis until its final school year, 1998–1999, when it had 250 students and an annual tuition of $4,700 ($7,645.25 when considering inflation). The school was scheduled to close in June 1999.
